WHY YOU SHOULD SKIP THIS PRODUCT
Out of all the Asian bb creams that I have tried before, I must say that I’m the most disappointed at this one. First of all, it only comes in one shade until the Perfect Cover Missha BB cream and the Signature one from Missha. I’m happy that I had purchased the smaller tube (20 ml) instead of the 50 ml tube. For someone like me with a really oily skin this sounded promising. However, I did not notice any matting effect of this BB Cream at all. I even had the feeling it was quite the opposite. My skin felt more greasy at the end of the day.

The texture of the bb cream is very similar to all the other Missha bb creams. It’s very thick, thus, it does give a full coverage. As you can tell from the photo above, the cream is thick! However, what I really disliked about this product is that it didn’t go on as smoothly as the Perfect Cover one. The thick texture makes it hard to apply the cream on your face evenly. I would argue that it’s even a tad bit thicker than the Perfect Cover. Plus, the one colour choice just did not match my skin. It’s just far too light for me. This bb cream also pulls a bit gray in comparison to other bb creams. I have more of a hello undertone to my skin, thus, it’s without a doubt not suitable for me. I would have to mix it with foundation to make it work for me, but then why would I use a bb cream then?


Overall, I would not recommend this product. I would pay just a little bit more to get the higher end Missha bb creams. I sometimes believe that what you pay is what you get. And since this bb cream is one of the cheapest bb cream in the whole line of Missha bb creams. I do think that it really affects the results. I would recommend the Missha Perfect Cover or the Missha Signature BB Creams over this one.

RATING
Product (1/5)
Cost (4/5) – It is much cheaper than some of the other Missha bb creams for $8.99 (20ml) tube.
Ease of Use (3/5) – Hard to blend
Packaging (4/5) – Pretty normal, I do like the squeezable tube
